Broadpeak Performs World-First Video Unified Packaging and Encryption of DASH and HLS Posted: 13/02/2020
Broadpeak Performs World-First Video Unified Packaging and Encryption of DASH and HLS

Broadpeak®, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, today announced that it has completed the world's first unified packaging and encryption of DASH and HLS formats. Using the latest version of its BkS350 origin packager, Broadpeak successfully delivered DASH and HLS video fragments using the same chunks (encrypted with CBCS) and container (CMAF) for both protocols, a unique capability that will optimize storage costs for OTT service providers.

Until CMAF was developed, HLS and DASH needed to be delivered in different containers. In addition, Apple FairPlay and Google Widevine used different encryption schemes (i.e., CBCS and CTR), creating the need for a different chunk for each streaming format (i.e., HLS and DASH) even with the new CMAF container. Now that Widevine allows CBCS encryption, it is possible to encrypt one CMAF fragment for both HLS and DASH formats. Broadpeak's BkS350 origin packager is the first solution to offer this capability.

Videon EdgeCaster Edge Compute Encoder Compatibility With AWS Elemental MediaStore Enables a Cost-Effective, Low Latency Solution Posted: 26/11/2019
Videon EdgeCaster Edge Compute Encoder Compatibility With AWS Elemental MediaStore Enables a Cost-Effective, Low Latency Solution

Videon today announced compatibility with AWS Elemental MediaStore, enabling a cost-effective, low-latency solution. Videon customers can now use AWS Elemental MediaStore as a direct ingest from the EdgeCaster H.264/HEVC video encoding platform to support ultra-low latency workflows with outputs supporting both HLS and DASH using CMAF. AWS Elemental MediaStore's support of EdgeCaster's ingest protocols enables less than three-second worldwide latency to be achieved with standards-based, scalable, and cost-effective workflows.

"Live streaming should not come with a latency penalty as compared to traditional broadcast TV," said Todd Erdley, founder and CEO of Videon. "EdgeCaster's compatibility with AWS Elemental MediaStore is a strong step forward to making live streaming truly live —using standards-based, viewer-scalable, and cost-effective solutions. Compatibility with AWS Elemental MediaStore represents an important development in our relationship with Amazon Web Services. AWS Elemental offers crucial insight into how streams can be ingested into AWS Elemental MediaStore and how Videon can optimize our platform."

ATEME and Broadpeak Enable High-Quality, Ultra-Low-Latency Live Multiscreen Video For DVB-I Services Posted: 24/10/2019
ATEME and Broadpeak Enable High-Quality, Ultra-Low-Latency Live Multiscreen Video For DVB-I Services

Broadpeak®, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, and ATEME, the emerging leader in video delivery solutions, today announced a new high-quality, ultra-low-latency live video streaming solution that supports the emerging DVB-I standard ecosystem. Recently demonstrated at IBC2019, the joint solution leverages advanced technologies, such as machine learning-based encoding, multicast ABR, low-latency CMAF and HTTP chunked transfer encoding (CTE), enabling pay-TV operators going multiscreen to deliver a superior quality of experience (QoE) for live streams with just 1 second of end-to-end latency.

"ATEME continuously works towards delivering a superior experience and outstanding quality for ABR video while reducing the OPEX and CAPEX for pay-TV operators," said Michel Artières, ATEME's CEO. "Latency is a major issue for our customers. By leveraging our continuous efforts towards innovation, we have implemented patented machine learning-based compression, minimizing any video pipeline buffer. Through our partnership with Broadpeak, the leader in multicast ABR, we can drastically improve the quality of live video streaming."
